With 1.7 million copies of the Dexter novels sold, and ever-increasing critical acclaim, Jeff Lindsay returns to his groundbreaking and beloved character with his most entertaining book yet. Get ready for a grisly send-up of Hollywood, and a full dose of dark Dexter wit.
Lights. Camera. Mayhem. You won't find this story on television.
Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.
Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem...Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi...but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame.
Jeff Lindsay's razor-sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.

I was excited to see that another book was available.
He brings life to Dexter.
The whole book was disappointing , I kept waiting for the jarring places to resolve themselves.
Definitely given a better ending. So what, every character in the group is bleeped?
I was very disappointed and let down.
Everything! It was predictable, slightly boring, and frankly...it seems that Jeff Lindsey just phoned this one in!
Made it quite a bit less anti-climatic! or Write another Dexter book that treats this one as just a bad dream!
While he is a great author, he lacks a bit in the role of narrator. He speaks too fast at times and runs sentences together.
I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it WAS a Dexter story. But on the other hand, it wasn't a very good Dexter story. So...it was worth a listen-but not worth a second listen.
Please don't leave Dexter as is with this...(what feels like) conclusion. Mr. Lindsey, you can do much better!
The ending was very depressing, but better then the ending to the show. I wish this book had more involvement with his family because they are hilarious.
Almost from the beginning this was a disappointment. The signature sharp wittiness of the series was soft in this book, clues were so broad so early that Dexter seemed dim to have missed them so completely, logic errors-occasionally present but forgivable in other books in the series- were so glaring as to be distracting. Love the series but not this entry into it.
Yes, Dexter is always fun to read
Jeff Lindsay did a really good job of showing that even though Dexter is the hero he is not a nice guy.
Yes, it left you hanging
Great book - it's unbelievable how many twists and turns are in these books that take place in the life of Dexter...This book left me wanting more answers - hope there's another coming!
I've read all of his books - they just keep getting better
I love a good book...
Jeff Lindsay has completed this series with such a wonderful twist. I love how he resolved my angst at having hopes for Dexter to get away with all he has done. Lindsay's reading of his own book was fun as he knew exactly how each character should sound and the emphasis of their dialog.
I was all but done with the series, but the second half of this book is awesome. I'll admit the book has some flaws and weird choices, that has always been true with the book series... But this book shakes things up near the end and makes me look forward to the next book.
Read this one!
Yes. The characters are deep and well developed and the story-telling is superb since the author speaks his own words.
Dexter evolves in little ways in each book, but big changes are afoot in this one. Mr. Lindsay's description of the inner workings of Dexter's mind and his Dark Passenger's are sometimes chilling - does he know the material too well, you think.
Keep more coming!
